Duty of Care
Our legal requirements dictate that in any setting, we may need to oblige to national reporting obligations. In certain circumstances, if your communication with us raises safety concerns we will try to contact you to check that you and/or others are safe. If necessary, we may need to pass on your contact information (if you have supplied it) to authorities who can help protect you and/or others, such as a crisis service or the police. Where possible we will work with you openly, letting you know if our concerns reach the point where we need to involve other services.
We are obliged to try to protect you and/or others if the information you submit tells us that:
- you are being seriously hurt by someone else
- you are thinking of seriously harming yourself
- someone else is being, is likely to be, seriously hurt by you or another person.
